And the posing begins! Analeigh and Elina are first. Analeigh does not look for the light, and also gets her dress caught on the decorations in the window. Miss J. notes that Elina is the one who's representing the dress best so far. McKey and Sam then pose in their dollhouse window. McKey tells us that she really wants to win the competition, as she needs a confidence boost. Miss J. notes that he likes the wallpaper that he can see through the window. The designers are kind enough to say that they like the models as well. Sam is the dollier of the two, but McKey's hair and skin look lovely. Sam and McKey work well together, and at one point hold up an actual doll in doll-like fashion. Meta! Marjorie and Sheena are next in their Blade Runner-meets-punk-meets-lots of angst window. Marjorie's edgy and extreme movements garner raves from J. and the designers. She's freaky not only in her face, but in her body, which is a good thing. Sheena, meanwhile, is selling what she wants them to buy, according to Miss J. And it's not the dress. Maybe she's just paying homage to the working girls? In the end she's just too pretty and too feminine for the clothes.
J. and Carlo gather the girls together and introduce Mariette Hoitink from Red Light Fashion Amsterdam. Is "Hoitink" the best surname you've ever heard or what? I want to drop it into normal conversation. For example, "Holy Hoitink! I think I've got it!" Or, "Hell to the Hoitink-naw." Or, "Gurrrrl, you best keep your Hoitink to yourself." It's so versatile! Ms. Hoitink announces that the winners will get to come back for Amsterdam International Fashion Week and walk in shows for several designers. This is a good prize, even if I'm still not totally convinced that Amsterdam is really known for its fashion. [Ed's note: Gurrrl, you know it's true! -- Lauren] The prize comes courtesy of the City of Amsterdam. Guess they signed on for it before they saw all the va-jay-jay shaving. The girls get their critiques. Miss J. says that Marjorie was absolutely fantastic. Sheena was too pretty/sexy and not rock n' roll enough. Also, she looked like a whore. Which is legal, but still. Sam did a bit better than McKey, but the two worked very well as a team and understood what the designer wanted. Elina's control worked in her favor for once, while Analeigh got all tangled in the window dressing. In any case, the winners of the challenge are McKey and Sam. I am completely distracted from their victory, as I've just noticed that Miss J. appears to be wearing a t-shirt over opaque tights and nothing else. Hoitinks, indeed! Sam and McKey, however, ignore the ensemble and are extremely excited about their prize.
